Last month we covered the SEMA show from a who, what and where perspective, that is, we showed you all the cool trucks and what was happening at the show. This month, we’re going to bring you the why.
What with all the custom vehicles and outlandish goings on it may have become a tail wagging the dog situation, but SEMA was initially and still is about companies debuting their latest products to buyers from all over the world. This being the 50th Anniversary, there were many companies at this years SEMA that may not make it every year, so this one was special.
That’s why this month we’re going to bring to you a handful of the latest products, (mostly good and one bad). There are multiple halls just for this purpose, and if you go to the SEMA website, you’ll see more. But with companies making products for every facet of automotive customization, there were halls for every conceivable style of custom vehicle, and halls set aside just for engine performance products.
We picked though them all for you and are just showing truck stuff. Yes, space prohibits us from showing every part and piece, but as we said, you can go to the SEMA website to see them all.
There has been a lot of products debuted at SEMA over the past 50 years.
